No Coat Hanger Illegal Abortions Button: No Return to Illegal Coat Hanger Abortions
$2.25 $1.00 On Sale!
It's time to bring back the wordless, iconic button against a return to illegal abortion. The coat hanger was a grim graphic symbol in the 1970s for the movement to keep abortion safe and legal. A generation of young people today may not know the meaning of the coat hanger with the red slash across it, or know what it means. Now that the rightwing Supreme Court has gotten rid of women's right to safe, legal abortion in the U.S., this message is more important now than ever. Everyone thought the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision protecting abortion rights was a "settled law" but it really wasn't. Under a far-right Supreme Court, we can't take anything for granted. These are from our metal lithographed print run in the 1990s: $1.00 each while supply lasts. Metal lithograhed buttons are no longer made anywhere. The last manufacturer, Adco Lirho in Chicago, closed in 2018. The era of those inexpensive, one-piece buttons printed directly on metal is gone forever, just like other now obsolete, but once essential things (carbon paper, typewriters, VHS video cassettes and players/recorders). We cannot let the right to safe, legal abortion become forever gone. Resist and challenge the growing movement toward theocracy and fascism in the U.S.

Button: Support Democracy in Haiti
1.5" Square button The text on this button can be easily modified to be a statement about the Russian war against Ukraine. Revues the 1/4" line "IN HAITI" with a yellow Post-It" note you can handwrite: "IN UKRAINE" or we can do it for you (just request that in the Customer Comments field (no extra charge). The catastrophic earthquake in Haiti in 2010 jeopardizes any notion of democracy there. After the massive disaster, the economic and military aftershocks to the tragedy follows what Naomi Klein exposed in her best-selling book, "The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism." Supporting democracy in Haiti means financially supporting people-to-people aid efforts of non-governmental organizations like Partners In Health, and, Doctors Without Borders, Oxfam America.

WTC.gif Button: Within The Contradiction Lies The Hope - Bertolt Brecht
1.25" Button
ABL.gif Button: The Airwaves Belong to the Listeners
$2.00 $0.50 On Sale!
(1.25" button) More relevant today than it was 33 years ago when we first introduced this button! In February 2011 Republicans in Congress voted to de-fund public radio (N.P.R.) and TV (P.B.S.) broadcasting This is the button that began Donnelly/Colt's buttonmaking back in 1977... we created it for the local listeners support group, the Friends of WBAI... The issue is still very relevant today as corporate America has successfully privatized the airwaves, and the Reagan administration did away with the F.C.C.'s Fairness Doctrine, opening the floodgates to one-sided rightwing media consolidation and domination beginning in the 1980's

NHB.GIF Button: No Human Being is Illegal / No Ser Human es Ilegal
SSI.GIF Button: Stop Scapegoating Immigrants
1.5" Square button
Why this button message is so important today: This issue is perennial, for decades in our country it rears its ugly idea that immigrants are less-human than we ourselves. There is an eloquently written piece written by a Canadian entitled "Why I'm Not Signing Your Petition..." worth reading and sharing. Print it out ( ) and give it with this button to a friend. The present-day rise in popularity of scapegoating and hating immigrants is a very dangerous red flag signaling the disintegration of two of our greatest qualities compassion and humanity among reactionary people and their movement. Narcissism and entitlement is the basis of this regression.

NMTTA.gif Button: No More Troops to Afghanistan
$2.00 $1.00 On Sale!
(1.5" Button) The situation in Afghanistan is a nightmare. The surge has not worked. As we escalated the war, the insurgency fought harder and grew in numbers. Western troops are seen as foreign occupiers in the Afghan homeland, and now have murdered 16 civilians, including little children, in the middle of the night in Kandahar province. The surge has produced a record number of coalition and Afghan deaths, injuries and lost limbs. The surge has not stopped the momentum of the insurgency; just last year there were over 16,000 IED attacks against U.S. troops a record number. Bring our troops home.

WCBS.jpg Button: We Call BS
1.25" hand assembled
from the moving speech by Stoneman Douglas High School student Emma Gionzales, in Parkland, Florida. She was one of the students who survived the Valentine's Day shooting massacre in 2018, that launched a student gun reform movement to challenge the N.R.A. and the gun industry. "We Call BS" can apply to so many issues, but it started in response to the lies and bullshit that always are put out by the gun loibby after every mass killing. Students are sick and tired of being sick and tired. Show your solidarity.
